Working for KeyRing

Check our Vacancies

Many of our staff have worked for KeyRing for a long time. They are pretty enthusiastic about the work they do and were happy to tell us about what they love about their roles.

“KeyRing is made up of people it is a pleasure to work with. People who work with, for and on behalf of vulnerable adults. Really helpful people who I respect for who they are and what they do.”

Richard O’Malley, Support Manager, London

“When I left my last job I took a salary cut to work for KeyRing, because I strongly believed in the ethos and mission that KeyRing represented. I was not disappointed and 13 years on I am still motivated, inspired and committed to an organisation that does what it says on the tin! It has always been amazing to see the changes develop in people’s lives and know you have been a part of it. Members never cease to amaze me.”

Kath Heat, North East Regional Manager

“I am a people person, I enjoy working with a wide range of people with different needs and supporting them to develop their skills and confidence, in order to achieve their personal goals and move on from KeyRing.”

“I have loved my time with KeyRing so far and being part of such a supportive team that does such amazing things in the community. Looking forward to seeing what the new year brings!”

Hannah, London

“I have really found KeyRing a great place to work, in large part because I always felt very supported. Opportunities like the trainings I was able to attend, the 'day in the life' session, and sitting in on board meetings really allowed me to develop and learn in exactly the way I was looking to during this year! Equally, the way in which staff from all parts of the organisation were always more than willing to chat to me and answer questions says a lot about KeyRing's really positive culture.

I'm grateful to have been able to start my career here and will be taking a lot with me.”

Elise, Charityworks Trainee

Volunteering for KeyRing

There are lots of different ways to volunteer with KeyRing. You could be a Community Living Volunteer (CLV) who lives in accommodation provided by us. Or you could give a few hours a week when it suits you as a Community Connections Volunteer. We may also have some volunteer opportunities working on a particular project.

You can see all our current vacancies here

This video will give you an idea of what KeyRing is like.

“Being a Community Living Volunteer (CLV) is certainly a learning curve and no two days are the same! We work as a team and have backup not only from the support managers who manage us but also from the experience of other CLVs. Someone is always on the end of a phone if we need help or advice. I still enjoy supporting Members and helping them deal with everything life throws at you!”

Clare, Oldham

Steph's Volunteering Journey

"I started my volunteer journey when I started having meetings with Michelle, she was the first person to understand me completely, she helped me gain the confidence I needed to go out into my community and meet people, after a while I was able to go to the hub that Michelle was running.

After a few more sessions with Michelle I was able to let go of the dark emotions that had been holding me back, and my confidence grew, Michelle asked me if I'd like to go to Bristol to do a Community Organising course, I had a lot of fun doing this and meeting new people. After Bristol, Michelle asked if I would help with running the hub meetings along with another person, I have now been helping for around a year, and while lockdown has been difficult for us all, we have kept up with the meetings, we were having meetings by video call every Friday night, and Wednesday afternoons, when the first lockdown ended we started meeting in a park, socially distanced, it was nice to be able to see each other in person, and then to go back to the church.

We are once again meeting in the park every Tuesday, after having video calls over the winter. I am now becoming an official volunteer with KeyRing, and sometimes can't believe how much my life has changed in just 2 years."
